I posted some pictures on Facebook and sent some Tweets last week updating everyone on the status of my sister and her baby, but I haven’t had time to post some stuff here. So…
My sister, Tara, and her husband Richard had a precious baby, Harper Elizabeth, who was born on Thursday @ 1:40 in Charlotte. She was 7 lbs 15 oz. Tara was scheduled to be induced on Thursday morning, but she woke up having contractions. Harper was born on her mother’s birthday (there’s a 0.02% chance of that happening)! She already loves her Uncle Trav. She loves Aunt Amanda and Obie too (even though I told Amanda that saying Aunt Amanda is difficult phonetically and her name would probably be graduated to Auntmanda pretty soon).
We got to love on Harper a bunch. I also got to spend about three days in the waiting room with Obadiah. While that may seem like torture for many of you trying to care for a fourteen month old locked in a waiting room, it actually was great. We had a blast! I know he can’t quite understand what I am saying, but I told him over and over how proud I was of how nice he was to his first cousin and well he was behaving. He got to know the entire nursing staff – he was a hit.
Anyway, my beautiful niece misses me already, and I am hoping to see her again soon (Psalm 127:3).
